Increased efficiency for image transfer workflow


Increase your work efficiency with the UT-1

Designed to significantly increase work efficiency for on-site photographers, the UT-1 is compatible with the Nikon D4, D800/D800e, and D7000. With the UT-1 connected to a Nikon digital-SLR camera, images from the camera can be transferred to a computer or an FTP server, or the camera can be controlled remotely from a computer, through an Ethernet (wired) network.

Plus, when the Wireless Transmitter WT-5 (available separately) is connected to the UT-1, the same functions can be accessed via a wireless network.

New DX-format CMOS image sensor and new image-processing engine, EXPEED 2, both developed by Nikon, enable capture of high-definition images with superior image quality

The D7000 is equipped with a new Nikon DX-format CMOS image sensor and a new image-processing engine, EXPEED 2. The camera offers an effective pixel count of 16.2-million pixels and enables capture of high-definition images exhibiting superior image quality with extremely detailed rendering and rich tones with smooth gradations. With standard sensitivity range of ISO100 – 6400 and additional increases of up to Hi 2 (ISO 25600 equivalent), the camera offers improved capability in shooting under dim lighting in the evening or indoors, and also expands possibilities for expression with rapidly moving subjects.

EXPEED 2 is Nikon’s latest image-processing engine developed using the ideas, expertise and technologies in digital imaging that Nikon has cultivated over the years. EXPEED 2 enables faster image processing, a high level of noise reduction, better color reproduction characteristics, and reduced power consumption.

A compact, elegant body that offers both authenticity and flexibility

A magnesium alloy has been adopted for the top and rear covers for increased durability in a size equivalent to that of the D90. All joints on the camera body have also been sealed to ensure a greater level of water and dust resistance.

A new 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor

With 2,016 pixels, the new metering sensor developed for the D7000 offers twice the metering pixels as our previous high-end metering sensor. Prior to shooting, the 2,016-pixel RGB sensor acquires accurate information regarding the scene. That information is then reflected in auto-focusing, automatic exposure, i-TTL balanced fill-flash, and auto white balance control for extremely faithful images.

A new 39-point AF system

  • An AF sensor module with 39 effective focus points
    Adoption of the new Multi-CAM4800DX autofocus sensor module enables certain acquisition and tracking of the intended subject with 39 focus points. Nine cross-type sensors gives greater choice of where to set the focus. The number of active focus points can also be limited to 11.
  • Superior subject acquisition and tracking performance
    Depending upon the scene or subject, the AF-area mode can be selected from Single-point AF, Dynamic-area AF, 3D-tracking and Auto-area AF. Wide focus areas containing a large number of focus points work together to accurately acquire and track the subject – ideal for sports, wildlife and fast-moving subjects.

D-Movie for recording and editing of full HD movies

The D7000 is equipped with the D-Movie function that enables recording of high-definition movies (1920 × 1080p, 24 fps) exhibiting superior video quality. Autofocusing during movie recording is possible using contrast-detect AF. When the focus mode is set to Full time-servo AF (AF-F) and the AF-area mode to Subject-tracking AF, the camera automatically maintains focus on a subject moving throughout the frame in three dimensions.

The D7000 also offers in-camera movie editing functions that allow users to save a single frame as a still JPEG image or delete unnecessary portions from the beginning or end of movie files. Recording of stereo sound via an external microphone is also supported.

Other functions and features new to the D7000

  • A glass pentaprism for viewfinder frame coverage of approximately 100% and magnification of approximately 0.94×
  • High-speed continuous shooting of up to 100 shots at approximately 6 fps, and a very precise and durable shutter unit that has passed testing for 150,000 cycles
  • New U1 and U2 settings on the mode dial allow users to assign frequently used settings including ISO sensitivity and exposure compensation, for instant recall, by simply rotating the mode dial
  • Live view function that can be smoothly enabled with the dedicated live view switch
  • Double SD memory card slot that enable use of two SD memory cards (SDHC, SDXC also supported)
  • The Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL15, which enables capture of around 1,050 shots when fully charged
  • Support for the new Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D11 (sold separately), which holds not only Rechargeable Li-ion Batteries EN-EL15, but also AA batteries
  • Nikon’s image browsing and editing software, ViewNX 2, supplied with purchase
